Coppa priority for Allegri

27 February 2018 15:52:44 UK

Massimiliano Allegri has set his sights on more Coppa Italia glory, despite Juventus still being well in the Serie A title race.

The current inclement weather around Europe saw Sunday's clash against Atalanta postponed and Napoli's subsequent win at Calgliari means the Partenopei now sit four points clear.

Despite having dominated the domestic scene since 2012, the games are piling up for the Bianconeri, a situation in contrast to Napoli, who are already out of Europe and the Coppa.

Juve face Tottenham next week in the Champions League but first up they take on Atalanta on Wednesday in the cup.

We have the Coppa Italia, which is an equally important goal for us.

La Vecchia Signora are 4/5 to win the game, with the draw 23/10 and La Dea available at 15/4.

Allegri's side have won the tournament in each of the last three seasons and another triumph could see them become the first team in the modern era to win their national competition four times in a row.

Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are in the same situation in their respective countries and all will be gunning for their place in history.

Although he is by no means giving up on the club's seventh straight Scudetto, Allegri says another cup triumph is just as important to his side.

"The championship will be played for until the last day and the two teams will fight," he said. "Whoever is in front on May 20 will deserve to win the title,

"But we have the Coppa Italia tomorrow, which is an equally important goal for us, because no team in the modern era has won their national cup four times in a row.

"We have a big chance to do that this season, along with Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona (in their domestic cups). We have to focus on Atalanta, and then think about Lazio (on Saturday)."

Juve are 2/5 to win the Coppa Italia and 4/11 for the Serie A title.
